I did something that I promised I would NEVER do again. I agreed to write a guest post. What can I say? If someone comes and asks if I could make something Hungarian, I am going to say yes. Without any hesitation. Plus this w...

Because all homeschoolers ask each other: What curriculum do you use? Without further ado, here are our choices for the 2015-2016 school year. Just a quick note:  To be honest, I have not done the best job planing out my olde...

Cold fruit soups are a delicious summer treat. I grew up enjoying my Mom's cold sour cherry soup on hot summer days in Budapest. Without air conditioning nobody had appetite for a heavy meal. Light, sweet and cold is what we ...

I guess I expected too much from Elf on the Shelf. I think it happens to everyone. I hoped that a fun, creative way of having an elf around would encourage my kids to behave a bit better and would save me some lectures. Of co...

Over a decade ago I was introduced to Day of the Dead festival and sugar skulls at my local library. The women who volunteered for the event made hundreds of sugar skulls, and taught us about her heritage. It made a lasting i...

I am a book person. I love books. Even with today's fast paced life, Pinterest & blogs, I still prefer to hold a book in my hand. Most Hungarians love books, are avid readers and have a larger library than your average Americ...

Story
Tagline
mom of 5, bookworm, tries to be creative but simply does not have the time
Introduction
I am an average stay-at-home mom, with a messy house, who does not always cook dinner, does not worry about the miss matched furniture or lack of trendy home decorations, would rather read a book or sew than leave the house, who gets frustrated, angry and upset like everyone else, burns the food once in a while, does not always sew a straight line and often the only creative project she does is pick up the house or fold clothes.

Few quick things about me:

  • born and raised in Hungary
  • LDS
  • homeschool my 5 kids
  • married an American
  • live in Texas
  • tried to blog many times, I guess it is just not really for me
  • my latest blog-fail:  Plenty of Paprika
Bragging rights
few of my projects were published in Make Your Mark - reative Ideas Using Markers, Paint Pens, Bleach Pens & More by Larks Crafts and Craft Camp by also Lark Crafts.
